Our growing reputation

Our Trust’s work, and in particular its research, innovation and training in mental health has contributed to our national and international reputation. We are affiliated with a number of academic and research organisations as well as other mental health providers in the UK and across the world.

We also have a charity, Caring Minds, which directly raises money for the service users, carers and staff of the Trust, helping to provide the extras that normal NHS funding does not provide, such as equipment, specialised furniture, research and service users events.

Our clinical expertise has led us to develop and contribute to ground-breaking national policies. We also regularly receive visitors to transfer knowledge and share good practice. Read more about some of our national and international work by clicking on some of the links on this page.

If you want to find out more about the work we do locally, which as you can imagine there are plenty, please take a look at our Trust's magazine Trust Talk.
